1 Corinthians 8

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16]

8:1 But concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know, (for we all have knowledge: knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.

8:2 If any one think he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know [it].

8:3 But if any one love God, *he* is known of him):

8:4 -- concerning then the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in [the] world, and that there [is] no other God save one.

8:5 For and if indeed there are [those] called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, (as there are gods many, and lords many,)

8:6 yet to us [there is] one God, the Father, of whom all things, and *we* for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom [are] all things, and *we* by him.

8:7 But knowledge [is] not in all: but some, with conscience of the idol, until now eat as of a thing sacrificed to idols; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

8:8 But meat does not commend us to God; neither if we should not eat do we come short; nor if we should eat have we an advantage.

8:9 But see lest anywise this your right [to eat] itself be a stumbling-block to the weak.

8:10 For if any one see thee, who hast knowledge, sitting at table in an idol-house, shall not his conscience, he being weak, be emboldened to eat the things sacrificed to the idol?

8:11 and the weak [one], the brother for whose sake Christ died, will perish through thy knowledge.

8:12 Now, thus sinning against the brethren, and wounding their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.

8:13 Wherefore if meat be a fall-trap to my brother, I will eat no flesh for ever, that I may not be a fall-trap to my brother.
